Question/Topic: Can you provide me with Martin County's 1950 population? 
Answer/Pointer: Martin County's TOTAL POPULATION in 1950: 7,807 If you need more than this, there's an excellent web site with historical census information on it: Select the year you want from the list at the left, such as 1950. Scroll down to population characteristics and select what you want. You can select more than one item if you hold the CTRL key down at the same time as you left click on the option. For example, you can pick total population and total households. Click on Browse 1950 data. Ignore the boxes at the top of the next screen. Scroll down and click in the box next to Florida. Scroll down some more and click on the "View counties" button. Again, ignore the boxes at the top of the next page. Scroll down to view the data you've requested for each of Florida's counties that existed in that year.
